What’s Inside My September 2012 Topbox?

Well it’s official. I’m going to cancel my Topbox.ca subscription. I waver back and forth between being somewhat satisfied and wanting to cancel and this month’s box is the straw that broke the camel’s back. Definitely not impressed.

Benefit They’re Real! Mascara sample – I have been wanting to try this mascara and love getting mascara samples so I am happy with this.
Balenciaga Paris L’ESSENCE by BALENCIAGA PARIS perfume sample – I already have this perfume so obviously not terribly excited by it but I do enjoy receiving perfume samples in my subscription boxes. This is a 4 ml sample so more generous than the average perfume sample. Wish it was in a spray bottle though. :-(
philosophy purity made simple one-step facial cleanser sample – 30ml sample so fairly generous. Just not terribly exciting to me. I’m happy with my cleansing routine.
M.Asam Perfect Teint primer sample – 5ml sample. I swear by primers so it will be nice to try a new one.  
So as you can see I don’t hate all my samples. So why am I going to cancel? Well first of all there is no full size product. I know we shouldn’t “expect” one but admit it, we have all become a little accustomed to receiving at least one full size item in our subscription boxes. Secondly these may be considered deluxe sample sizes but considering there are only 4 included in the box I expect something more. 
There is also a card included for a complimentary cosmetic pouch from Balenciaga Paris from Holt Renfrew while supplies last but it’s not really worth mentioning as most people do not have easy access to a Holt Renfrew.

    I’m still waiting for mine. I’m hoping I get the mascara because I’ve been wanting to try it out for a while. Hopefully next month is better tho.

    Hi Christa! I wish I received the voucher this month! If you don’t end up redeeming your voucher, I’d love to do a swap with you for something you’d like instead. I have a lot of unused nail polishes from opi and essie that I could send you! Please let me know if you’re interested and we can set something up =)

    Do you gals mean you had even less in your Topboxes than I did or something different. I couldn’t imagine it being more of a letdown?!
